So I’m bursting with things to share.
(We had the Pope yesterday!* I rode a lithium-battery-powered bike!)
Mainly, from yesterday: the future of robots and artificial intelligence — and the need for an incentives-enhanced universal guaranteed income.
But let’s start with Dollar Street: a website that sent photographers to 240 homes in 46 countries to document 135 different items […]
Not everyplace is doing as well as Seattle — or is as expensive to live in — so an immediate jump all the way to $15 everywhere may not compute. But consider:
The unemployment rate in Seattle is at a near-record low of 2.9 percent. Weird, since we were told over and over again by corporate […]
I got a Ferrari!
Also: a golden unicorn (head only; not real gold), a gold pocket watch (real gold!); The New York Times Essential Guide to Grilling (and a certificate for a grill!); a 1000-piece New Yorker cartoon jigsaw puzzle (beautifully wrapped and perfect for regifting, it being the thought that counts); number 11-of-40 […]
Well, ten very old words. But some, like overmorrow, we should bring back. And share with the blateroons apricating at the beach this summer. Click here. (Thanks, Glenn!)
You’ve probably already seen Jared Kushner’s take on Kim Jong-Un. It’s pretty funny. (Thanks, Andy Borowitz.)
A tech wizard I admire, Martine Rothblatt, tells me that Dr. Richard Feynman . . . a lecture of whose she […]
My friend Brian woke at 4am Easter night (technically, Monday morning) remembering he’d not got the vacuum cleaner his bi-weekly housekeeper needed.
Before rolling over back to sleep, he reached for his phone, visited Amazon Prime Now (do they have it where you live?) and for . . . are . . . you . . . sitting . […]
That’s the name of a show ending its limited engagement April 28, so I’m remiss only to be telling you about it now. But on the off chance you’re in New York and can snag a couple of tickets to one of the final performances, grab them. It’s just so good. How far gay men have come since The […]
Need an extension? Form 4868. But you still have to pay a good estimate of what you owe.
And don’t forget that — if you’ve had significant 2017 income on which taxes were not withheld — your first estimated quarterly tax is also due today.
I, of course, have not done either, and neither of us wants […]
Are you marching for science a week from Saturday? Click here! (“Atmospheric CO2 concentrations are now on pace to double this century, reaching the highest levels in 50 million years. Without further action, we’re headed to a point of no return for the planet.”)
But here for 11 minutes of good news:
If astronauts on […]
I was once on Bill O’Reilly’s Show. Another time, we sat next to each other at dinner (as fellow contributing editors of PARADE, the Sunday supplement). He was perfectly cordial both times. But he has a temper. I’d not seen these 90 seconds before. Charming.
As advertisers flee O’Reilly’s show, he retains at least one prominent endorser: the President. Donald knows […]
